Hell’s Kitchen 3 scheduled to debut in June

When the hell will Hell’s Kitchen 3 debut on FOX? A lot of people have been asking that question, primarily because the show was scheduled to debut this month.

New episodes of Gordon Ramsay screaming at chefs would have aired on Thursdays at 9. That’s a hyper-competitive timeslot, and FOX is currently airing Family Guy repeats at that time. (Reality TV World calls that a “surprising idea [that] was apparently short-lived.”)

But now, the show’s web site says it’ll debut June 25, airing Mondays at 8. That’s a little more than a year after the second season’s debut, and it keeps Gordon away from the heat (oh!) of Thursday nights.

+ Update: As The Futon Critic later reported, FOX changed its mind, and the show will now air during the summer.
